Map of the area south of the Civic Auditorium (now Keller Auditorium), dated April 1955. It is from a report proposing the neighborhood as a possible site for the Exposition-Recreation Center, which was eventually built on the east side and is now known as the Veterans Memorial Coliseum. The map shows the percentage of dwelling units on each block that lacked a private bath or that the city judged to be in a dilapidated condition. During the planning process for the Exposition-Recreation Center, the Portland Housing Authority used the condition of neighborhoods as a rationale for redevelopment, and to gain access to federal urban renewal funding.
